Enlargement of the prostate gland effects the flow of urine through the urethra. The prostate cells gradually multiply, creating an enlargement that puts pressure on the urethra results bladder has to contract more forcefully to push urine through the body.Eventually, the bladder muscle cannot overcome the effect of the narrowed urethra so urine remains in the bladder and it is not completely emptied.
Prostate laser surgery is used to relieve moderate to severe urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
During prostate laser surgery, We insert a scope through the tip of your penis into the tube that carries urine from your bladder. The urethra is surrounded by the prostate. A laser is passed through the scope. The laser delivers energy that is used to shrink or to remove the excess tissue that is blocking the urethra and preventing urine flow. Another instrument, called a morcellator, is then used to chop the prostate tissue into small pieces that are easily removed.
The type of laser surgery we will perform depends on several factors, including the size of your prostate, health, and which procedure is the best for successful results.
